TRIU: WWE Battleground PPV (7/19/15) Review...

Scottrade Center in St.Louis, MO (7/19/15)


                                                                                  With this one they decided to do a video promo of all the major matches from tonight. They go straight to the ring where we have Sheamus coming down to the ring for his match with Sheamus…


Singles Match (Grudge Match): Randy Orton vs. Sheamus (Winner: Orton via Pin Fall):  This was a brutal match; both Sheamus and Orton took some hard shots. After watching these two pummel each other for about 15mins, Orton finally hit a surprise RKO on Sheamus and got the pin and the win this was a great way to start the PPV…

                                                                                   They go to a video package of the Diva’s Revolution as Stephanie McMahon introduced the newest Diva’s on the roster. Banks, Charlotte and Lynch all made impressive debuts for the young Diva’s to make an impact. We then go to a backstage interview with Stephaine McMahon as she discusses the Diva Revolution. Steph also announces the triple threat match between the 3 Diva’s teams later tonight. Next we start with the New Day on their way to the ring for their tag champ match against the champs the Prime Time Players…


Tag Team Match (WWE Tag Titles): © Prime Time Players vs. The New Day (Winners: © PTP via Pin Fall): For this match the New Day went with Kingston and Big E and they put up one hell of a fight. There was several times in which I thought that New Day were going to win the titles. But alas it didn’t happen and in the end Darren Young laid out most of the New Day including Xavier Woods and opened the door for Titus to hit the Power Bomb and get the win to retain the titles…

                                                                                    Now They are backstage with the team of Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch they make the decision that Charlotte will represent them in the triple threat match tonight!! We then cut to a video package of the feud between Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns. When we go to ringside Bray Wyatt is out 1st for their match…



Singles Match (Grudge Match): Bray Wyatt vs. Roman Reigns (Winner: Bray Wyatt via Pin Fall): Another amazing match between 2 of the WWE’s best and brightest. Both Reigns and Wyatt wore down at times in this match that just added to the image of both men. In the end it was Bray Wyatt getting help from Luke Harper to hit Sister Abigail and get the win. Definintly MON material…

                                                                                 After showing the players from the Cardinals in the audience to a roar from the crowd, We go backstage and JoJo is interviewing BAD as they talk about how they are going to win in the triple threat match that is next. First out is the team of Banks, Naomi and Tamina…



Divas Match (Triple Threat): © Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte vs. Brie Bella (Winner: Charlotte via Tap Out): This was the 1st match of the new Diva’s Revolution. The girls said that they wanted to bring the house down and they did exactly that . With all 3 woman looking strong the finish saw Charlotte end up in the ring alone with Brie Bella who she hits with the figure 8 for the submission win…

                                                                                   They go to video of the pre show match between Barrett and Truth for the King of the Ring crown. Barrett beat Truth to remain the King of the Ring. We then get a video promo for the feud between John Cena and Kevin Owens. First out is Kevin Owens in this US Title match…


Singles Match (US Title, Grudge Match): © John Cena vs. Kevin Owens (Winner: © John Cena via Pin Fall): A very disrespectful Owens beat down on Cena for a lot of the match, but Cena is resilient and one hard SOB to pin down. Owens hit Cena with the champs own moves and tried to keep him down but it didn’t work at all. In the end Cena locked up Owens in the STF and locked it in to get the submission victory…

                                                                                  After revisiting the reason why Ryback cant defend the IC title, The Miz comes out to the ring to run down both Big Show and Ryback and tell everyone that he would have one the IC Title. He also states that the Authority should come out and give him the title. He talked until Show came out to the ring and knocked him out cold. We then get the promo video for the main event between Rollins and Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Out 1st we have the Champ Seth Rollins…


Singles Match (WWE Title, Grudge Match): © Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar (Winner: © Seth Rollins via DQ): This was a match that was fun to watch, why? Because Brock Lesnar beat the hell out of Seth Rollins for the final half hour of the PPV . After about 13 suplexes and a F5 it looked as if Brock was about to pin Rollins for the title when the lights go out. When the lights came back on the Undertaker was standing in the ring and proceeded to beat Brock down. And still you WWE World Heavyweight champion Seth Rollins…

Overall Grade: A (great PPV and worth the watch)…
